|House||House of Finwë|
|Parentage||Finwë and Indis|
|Siblings||Fëanor (half-brother), Findis, Fingolfin, Írimë, and Finarfin|
Faniel was the daughter of Finwë and Indis in an apparently discarded concept of the Legendarium. She had two brothers, Fingolfin and Finarfin, and two sisters Findis and Finvain (Írimë). She did not leave Valinor during the Flight of the Noldor.
Faniel is a Quenya name. -iel is a feminine name suffix which can mean "maiden" or "daughter of", but the first element of the name is unclear. Fan is a Sindarin prefix meaning "white cloud", "mist" or "veil" yet the Quenya and Sindarin cannot mix.
